Non-Televised Match
Carlito def. Rob Conway via Pinfall
Notes: Carlito should have had a match on the actual pay-per-view card.

Match #1 (SMDN)
Chavo Guerrero def. Rey Mysterio via Pinfall (11:00)
Notes: Dumbass Vickie Guerrero ran down to plead with both men to stop fighting. Both men did the Three Amigos, and the crowd booed Rey Rey when he did it. Rey Rey went for the Frog Splash, but Vickie tried to get up on the apron and knocked Rey off. Chavo capitalized and connected with a Frog Splash to get the victory. I'd say the crowd was pro-Chavo for sure. But both men claim to be fighting with Eddie. Abe Lincoln once said in 1862, "In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong." I didn't know Eddie, so I have no idea whose side he'd be on. All I know is that this whole angle seems kind of cheap to me, playing off Eddie's memory and all.

Match #2 - ECW World Heavyweight Championship - Extreme Rules Match (ECW)
The Big Show
def. Sabu
via Pinfall (8:30)
Notes: There were a bunch of chairs and tables, but for the most part, Big Show just tossed around Macho Man's evil twin. The best part was when Big Show went to the second rope and came down stomach-first on Sabu. I didn't much care for the match, but a few of the fans in attendance, most of which probably didn't even have fuzz on their peaches when the real ECW was around, got off on it. At least there was only one Extremely Crappy Wrestling match on the card.

Match #3 (RAW)
Hulk Hogan def. Randy Orton via Pinfall (10:59)
Notes: Hogan started out all tough and strong, but Orton gained control. Orton came off the top rope but Hogan dodged him. He tried hulking up at that point, but Randy fought him off. Randy even connected with the RKO, and received a three-count, but the referee saw Hogan's foot on the ropes. The match continued. Of course, at this time, Hogan was able to hulk up the whole way, and put down Randy with the legdrop. How can a guy two-and-a-half times his age defeat Randy? This was lame. I respect what Hogan has done, but geez. He just keeps showing up, and the fans love it. Next year he'll be moving down the ramp with a walker, and the crowd will still go nuts. And even then Hogan would probably beat his twenty-something opponent.

Match #4 - I Quit Match (RAW)
"Nature Boy" Ric Flair def. Mick Foley (13:13)
Notes: Flair used his nut grab maneuver pretty early on. Foley used all sorts of toys, like barbed wire on boards, barbed wire on Mr. Socko, and thumbtacks. Flair was on the receiving end of all of these. Not to mention the barbed-wire bat. Flair turned the tables with a low blow, and ended up knocking Foley off the apron and onto a garbage can. Some WWE officials, along with Melina, came out to attend to Foley after that. The referee was calling for the bell to stop the bout but Flair stopped him, saying this was an "I Quit" match and not a "Lay Down on Your Ass" match. He tossed Foley back into the ring and went to work on Foley with the barbed wire bat. Melina pleaded with Flair to stop, but he didn't. Melina shielded Foley, and Flair was charging when Foley quit. The ending was pretty lame.

Match #5 - World Heavyweight Championship (SMDN)
Dave Batista
def. King Booker
w/Queen Sharmell
via DQ (10:29)
Notes: 19. That's how many times we had to listen to Sharmell say "All hail King Booker" on the way to the ring. Seemed more like 19-hundred. Anyway, the Animal came out, did his dumb little machine-gun thing, and won--sort of. So much for getting "his" title back. At the beginning, Cole said something about how Dave "emotionally relinquished that title", to which JBL responded, "Not emotionally, he cried like a little bitch!" I thought that was funny. JBL's commentary is really well done. The match left something to be desired. Boring chant less than five minutes in. It didn't get much better from there. Sharmell ran in and caused the DQ. Booker tried to land the scissors kick after the fact, but Batista countered and delivered the Batista Bomb.

Match #6 (RAW)
"DeGeneration X"
(Triple H & Shawn Michaels)
def. Vince McMahon
& Shane McMahon
via Pinfall (13:02)
Notes: DX IV sucks. DX IV should be more like DX III (McMahon-Helmsley era). That is, not doing all the juvenile and unfunny schtick, but simply doing whatever the hell they want and just being plain old badasses. This routine of acting like 15-year olds is lame, especially when you realize it's being done by a couple of 40+ year old guys who are married with children. Before this matchup, the McMahons sent out the Spirit Squad, Mr. Kennedy, William Regal, Finlay, and the Big Show. And of course, DX fought them all off. They came in waves, but when Show came down he turned the tide and all these hired guns put HHH through the announce table. Michaels was also laid out in the ring. The McMahons then did a number of double-teams, including some old finishers. That was kind of cool. They used Demolition's, the Hart Foundation's, and LOD. But of course, having three finishing maneuvers put on him only served to reinvigorate Shawn. His energy burst burned out quickly, but it stopped the McMahons long enough for HHH to get back to the corner and take the tag. Trips turned the tide and was going to deliver the Pedigree when Umaga ran in and delivered his lethal thumb. Kane, who had taken exception to the fact Vince had called Umaga Raw's greatest monster (and DX told him this), did his run-in and chased off Umaga. But the damage was done and DX was down. They set up HHH in the corner with a garbage can in his face, and Shane attempted to go from pillar to post. But, Shawn gave him Sweet Chin Music in mid-flight. Actually, it was timed poorly, and Shane simply landed on Michaels' leg, so it looked like shit. Then Trips Pedigreed Vince and pinned him.

Match #7 - WWE World Heavyweight Championship (RAW)
def. John Cena
via Pinfall (15:41)
Notes: Geez. The crowd was way more into this match. Edge would lose the title if he was disqualified, and they did a nice job of reminding us of this when Edge had to hit the brakes for fear of running into the referee. He was taking no chances. It was pretty back and forth for most of the match. Lita at one point threw Edge a chair, but Edge got a crazed look in his eye and tossed it away. Cena then had an opening, but Edge countered out of the FU. What followed after that were many reversals and near falls. It was very close to over when Cena locked in the STFU. Edge made it to the ropes, and Cena had to release. As the ref was making him back off, Lita slipped a set of brass knucks onto Edge's hand. Cena set up Edge for the FU, but Lita jumped on as well. She was FU'd off, but Edge just kind of rolled off. The referee rolled Lita out of the ring, and Edge clocked Cena with the knucks. Cena was out cold, and it was over.
